The moderately tangy dark fruity, earthy, woody, bready, slightly sugary and floral year 2000 red Virginia is fairly even in terms of effect with the tart and lightly tangy, citrusy, mildly grassy, woody, floral, sugary, brighter Virginias, which also sport obvious apricot, lemon, and spice notes. There are a few times you’ll notice a light change of status between the reds and brighter Virginias. The plumy, woody, raisiny, earthy, rather spicy, tingly ten year old stewed sugary perique has just a little more than a mid-level importance without reducing the effectiveness of the Virginias. Has a very light prune topping. The strength and nic-hit are a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. The taste is a rung past that. Won’t bite or get harsh. Barely has any rough edges. This soft crumble cake easily breaks apart to suit your packing preference. A well melded blend that burns cool, clean and a touch slow with a relatively consistent sweet, spicy, slightly savory flavor from start to finish. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires a few relights, though the latter aspect depends on how you prepare it. Has a short lived, pleasant after taste and room note. Can be an all day smoke.
